|Well, I had a good day today, but it didn't start out so good. I felt very depressed this morning, and that lasted up until the meeting tonight. Sunday School was difficult, as one girl in another class just cries and cries, and it was a struggle to keep the kids' attention. And I was to open a Gospel meeting tonight and speak a bit, something which doesn't come easily for me. But God gave me much help. As soon as I entered the hall, the depression lifted, and the meeting was a success. And today I am 22 years saved! This link from my friend Darrell... |
Javier Solana, the High Representative for the European Common, Foreign and Security Policy said yesterday that he believes Israel is not capable of taking on Iran in the event that a diplomatic resolution can not be found to Iran's nuclear programme.
Quote: "European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana has said Israel is not able to confront Iran, the Tagesspiegel newspaper said on its website on Saturday. "Iran is a complicated country and it doesn't seem that Israel has the power to counter it," the paper quoted the Solana as saying. History has proven that Iran has been gaining more importance day by day in the international arena, the former NATO chief said on the sidelines of the Middle East conference in Madrid. He also called on Iran to help resolve the Middle East crisis.
His comments are a stark contrast to those of US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who stated today that she believes that Iran is the one that should be looking out, not Israel...
Quote: "Talk of a military strike against Iran shows how serious it would be for the Iranians to continue down the path of nuclear development, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in an interview with Channel 10 Sunday evening. "I still think there is room for diplomacy, but even talk of such action shows how serious it would be for Iran to continue their actions unabated," Rice said.
So much for Solana trying to pressurize the Iranians into giving up their nuclear ambitions. So far the European Union has talked with Iran, appeased Iran and has kicked the military option from underneath the US and Israel's feet. When Iran finally moves against Israel, where will the European Union be? I think Solana underestimates Israeli resolve to not let the holocaust ever happen again. He also doesn't consider that, as the saying goes, one with God is a majority, and when Iran marches on Israel then the world will know who the true God is.
